Necklace made of silver and multi-coloured enamel beads with 18ct yellow gold, threaded on a 9ct gold chain.
Materials and techniques
Turned beads inlaid with multi-coloured vitrious enamels - champ levee technique. The sequence of stringing the beads is the most essential part of the making as it is this sequence which denotes the flavour and interest of the total piece. In the making 10% of the beads have found to be defective and in the stringing approximately a further 10% are rejected as they do not find a place on the colour sequence.
Beads turned and inlaid with vitreous enamels. Some beads are fired a minimum of twice, maximum of six times in an electric kiln.
